What started as a random decision for her mother to enroll her in classes at a new local dance school, soon grew into a passion that Lauren Rahilly has been pursuing since the age of four. Miss Rahilly has been classically trained in Ballet & Pointe, Modern, Tap, Jazz and Hip Hop. Becoming a dance educator at the studio where she grew up, she furthered her dance education by attending additional conventions, workshops and competitions. Not only has Lauren shared her love of dance with her school but she has also devoted herself to sharing her talents with the community around her. Lauren represents CORE’s acclaimed Early Childhood Program at a number of local pre-schools and day care centers. Lauren has helped raise thousands of dollars through dance for such charitable foundations as Samaritan Hospice and Providence House, both of Burlington County. Her choreography has been featured in community performances for local events, performances by Arcadia University’s Knight Club Dance Company and most recently was sought after to be represented by DDO Arts Agency to appear in national venues and multi-media outlets. Lauren’s choreography has also earned various awards such as choreography, performance and top score awards. Her soloists rank among the highest in the country on the National competition circuit, making her one of the most awarded choreographers in the region. With a degree in Psychology from Arcadia University, Lauren utilizes her knowledge of child development and human interaction in the classroom and in her daily tasks as the Managing Director for CORE. Her choreography was recognized at the Pulse National Convention as a staff favorite by the esteemed panel from “So, you think you can dance” including Mia Michaels, Cris Judd and more. The piece was presented in NYC in summer of 2010.
Lauren maintains her education in health in fitness through certification programs and has designed a fitness regimen with Jaclyn called COREvolution that includes nutritional information for adult clients as well as healthy conditioning for our highschool and college students. Her natural abilities as a teacher once again opened doors when she and Jaclyn produced COREvolution fitness program and most recently, her own creation FitKidz;a full health and fitness program for kids ages 8-12 years. Lauren pursues fitness and holds professional certifications in multiple forms including Mat Pilates, Bikram Yoga, Spinning, TRX, Kettlebell, FitBar, Battlerope and most intensely CrossFit; constantly adding to her exercise repertoire. Through movement she has gained an intense and articulate knowledge of the body that has assisted her in creating unique fitness classes that are in high demand on both the personal and industrial level and include preventative and rehabilitative movement principles. Her clients will tell you that her fitness classes are tough but the results are well worth the sweat. Lauren has been a preferred choice in the Philly area to represent such sports and fitness icons as Reebok and City Sports as well as fitness modeling through many different venues. In 2013 Lauren started her own health and fitness blog.
